PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE): Pete Buttigieg is the first top-tier Democratic Presidential candidate to officially visit Providence this year. 

The South Bend, Indiana Mayor is in Providence raising money for his campaign. 

He is expected to be at Nick’s on Westminster for a private event, followed by a public event at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium on Saturday night, which is closed to the media. 

A recent Washington Post poll shows Buttigieg behind Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Santers, but still, ahead of other Democratic candidates all hoping to face off against President Donald Trump. 

Joe Biden is expected to visit Providence in just a couple of weeks.
